Immediately after I decided to enroll at the University of Arizona I declared a Political Science major (concentration in law and public policy) and a Religious Studies minor. Even before college I knew I wanted to go to law school. Since I first stepped onto the UA campus my intention to go to law school has never wavered, but I believe my conviction for the law and ultimately my law school scholarship are mostly due to my Religious Studies major. It opened my eyes to how much more complicated issues can often be than what may arise in a political or legal setting. It also gave me the opportunity to use my law and political science background to study topics that truly interest me. I can think of no more momentous and meaningful decision while I was in college than my decision to become a Religious Studies major.
